I don’t know if calling this post the “new bed” is accurate. It’s actually about an old bed and we’ve actually had it for a bit.
Remember this auction? We went back on October 1st. At the time I still had the scooter. Anyway, we bought the antique bed. It was complete and was $45. We had been looking for a queen bed as our boys who are 6′ 4″ complain about full sized beds. They say they don’t fit especially if there is a foot board.
Well Hubby was mid harvest and just happened to get the day off because of rain. We knew the things we bought at the auction would have to wait to be put in place or fixed until after harvest.
Well over Christmas break the bed finally made it’s way upstairs. Doing that is no small feat here. Remember we can’t get anything up our staircase? When we put on the addition we knew that and put the door to the outside in my sewing room.
Our desire is at some point to build an upper deck and stairs…for now we’re doing the best we can with what have so moving the bed upstairs went something like this….
Hubby and Craig were on the ground.
Karl was upstairs…Spencer (Kayla’s husband) was too. Karl is a joke-ster so he had to pose.
Hubby planning a rope lift system he hoped would work.
Up, up it went.
The frame was the hardest.
All of the pieces went up this way. It actually worked really well.
From the window to the ground it looked like this….
So what does it look like all set up? Take a look.
I know someone is going to ask…the quilt is Bonnie Hunter’s Spooling Around in More Adventures with Leaders and Enders.
I really prefer the really tall head boards this one is nice. It’s perfectly fine for the spare bedroom. We’ve decided that this might be our for forever bed but it might not. If a really tall one comes along we might change it out but we’re fine if this one stays too.
It does look nice with our dresser.
That’s one more thing we wanted to update in the house that’s done. Now I want to get a couple new ceiling fans upstairs. Thankfully that isn’t as involved as moving the beds around.
Happily the neighbor girls’ family needed a bed. Someone was sleeping on an air mattress so Hubby and the neighbor girl took it their house. I’m happy that it found a good home.
